in the circumstances set out in Note 2 on Rule 2.8 of the UK Takeover Code.

Note 2 of the UK Takeover Code

Note 2 of the UK Takeover Code reads as follows:

"2.     When a statement may be set aside

Except with the consent of the Panel, a statement to which Rule 2.8 applies may
be set aside only if:


(a)     the board of the offeree company agrees to the statement being set
aside. Where the statement was made at any time following the announcement by a
third party of a firm intention to make an offer, the statement may not normally
be set aside with the agreement of the board of the offeree company unless that
offer has been withdrawn or has lapsed;

(b)     a third party announces a firm intention to make an offer for the
offeree company; 

(c)     the offeree company announces a ''whitewash'' proposal (see Note 1 of
the Notes on Dispensations from Rule 9) or a reverse takeover;

(d)     the Panel determines that there has been a material change of
circumstances; or


(e)     the statement was made outside an offer period and an event has occurred
which was specified in the statement as being an event which would enable the
statement to be set aside (see Note 1).

The Panel will normally regard a switch by a third party offeror from a scheme
of arrangement to a contractual offer in accordance with Section 8 of Appendix
7, or an announcement of its firm intention to do so, as a material change of
circumstances under paragraph (d). However, a switch from a contractual offer to
a scheme of arrangement will not normally be regarded as a material change 
of circumstances."
